Other Greece

Apart from mainland Greece, the country is made up of thousands of islands. Estimates range from 1,200 to 6,000 in total. However, the number of inhabited islands is somewhere between 160 and 230. The larger islands, for example, Crete and Corfu, attract thousands of visitors and tourists each year, but if you are looking for somewhere more intimate its worth considering the smaller, less well known destinations.
There are plenty of options to choose from including Skopelos, which is part of the Sporades group and is famous for the film Mama Mia, Spetse (The Saronic Islands), Lesvos, Lemnos, and Paleros (which is situated mainland Greece).
